This article addresses the questions: Is global warming real? is global warming fake? is global warming a hoax? Indeed, global warming is a hoax and climate change alarmism is dangerous and harmful. This writing is an excerpt from my book, Hidden History: The Untold Story of the Democratic Party, available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle. To purchase, click the image to the left.
Even though our government has numerous checks and balances to prevent politicians from riding roughshod over individual rights, politicians have discovered that there is one thing, one tool, that they can use effectively to let them bypass these safeguards and rule us with unchecked power and control. That wicked implement is fear. If they can make us afraid, if they can declare an emergency, governors and mayors become emperors of their own empire. Their whims become laws, and the people cower before them because they have allowed themselves to be made fearful.
Let us now turn our attention to how corrupt politicians, filled with lust for power and control, are implementing policies that do nothing for mankind but bolster the high they feel from making others do stupid things, just because they can make them do them. It is pure power for the sake of having power. Control for the sake of control. To the sane, such a thing makes no sense, and we can hardly believe it until we realize these leaders are not sane. They are mad with power, and fear is a tool they use to exercise their power. If they can make people afraid, they can get them to do things they would not normally do.
While politicians will sometimes try to get people to do things just to show their power, such as mandating the wearing of cloth masks that science has shown do not work, more often they have a reason and a method behind their madness. The Democrat Party’s promotion of global warming hysteria is one platform that has an ulterior motive behind it. If anyone thinks that global warming is about saving the planet from severe weather, they have fallen for the ruse and not discerned the real motive behind the movement.
Politicians have changed the name of global warming to “climate change.” They had to do this because it was discovered that in the ’70s, these same alarmists were screaming that pollution was going to send us into an ice age. Also, in 2006 and 2007, the average global temperature declined significantly. Instead of admitting their predictions failed and their ruse had been discovered, they quietly changed the name from global warming to climate change. That way, whether it gets colder or hotter, they can still blame it on mankind’s use of modern technology.
A sincere investigation of the global warming craze shows that its proponents have one main goal in mind, to implement socialism. Global warming is the baby of the Democratic Party. They cuddle it, coddle it, and promote it. They continually cry that global warming will kill us all, but all the while, their real motive is the redistribution of wealth.
Global Warming is a Hoax
Let’s examine how the Democrats do this. Step one in their agenda is to cry that the sky is falling. They attempt to terrify people with unfounded proclamations that the world will end if something isn’t done. Remember, fear is the tool of control freaks; they make you afraid by saying things like this:
“The scientific community is telling us if we do not address the global crisis of climate change, transform our energy system away from fossil fuels to sustainable energy, the planet we’re going to be leaving our kids and our grandchildren may well not be habitable. That is a major crisis,” — Senator Bernie Sanders
Echoing this sensationalism, former Vice President Joe Biden said that climate change is “the existential threat to humanity.” Politicians are those who speak the loudest about global warming, while scientists are forced into submission and made to agree with these assessments, or they will not be hired or receive grant money for their projects. Many federally funded scientists have testified to being intimidated by threats to their funding if they don’t acquiesce to the party line. The Democrats rake in billions of dollars off the global warming scam and are not about to let real science hinder that. Many of these scientists are not even experts in weather, yet it is claimed that they all agree with global warming, while the voice of real meteorologists is ignored.
Climate Change is a Money Scam
Politicians, such as former presidential candidate Al Gore, have become millionaires by promoting global warming with cap-and-trade schemes. A cap-and-trade system works like this: The government makes an environmental policy that sets outrageously low limits on harmful pollutants and then sets an arbitrary price for exceeding those emission limits. Since many companies and factories cannot operate profitably within those limits, they are forced to purchase permits to allow them to exceed those limits. These permits, which are often called “allowances,” or “carbon-credits,” are actually a commodity that can be bought or sold at prices determined by supply and demand. You can even go online to the Carbon Trade Exchange and buy and sell these credits. Al Gore set up his own carbon credit-company, which has turned him into a multi-millionaire.
That Al Gore profited handsomely from global warming is a well-documented fact. Marketing global warming took Gore’s net worth from a million dollars to one-hundred million dollars. Through passing “cap-and-trade laws” and setting up their own “carbon credit” companies, politicians are selling licenses to pollute. It is equivalent to armed gangsters walking into a neighborhood store with baseball bats and saying, “Hey Joey, you better buy protection from us, or someone might whack your store.” The Democratic Party has become the mob.
Democrats make global warming a large part of their agenda because doing so gets them lots of money from Communist China. These politicians are in lucrative business relationships with China, relationships China has engineered in order to gain influence over American politics. The Chinese know full well that climate change agreements hurt the United States and help them, so they use their money and influence to enrichen politicians that support global warming policies.
Global Warming Hysteria is Fostered by our Enemies
It has recently come to light that many American environmental groups are funded by Russia and China. These foreign powers are pouring money into this effort, not because they have any concern for the environment, for they are the worst polluters in the world. Their goal is to destroy American’s energy sector so that they can become dominant suppliers of fossil fuel energy, giving them leverage and power throughout the world. U.S. Representative Lance Gooden wrote to the Justice Department urging them to conduct an investigation into these illegal affairs. Gooden wrote:
“China has a long history of successfully destroying American industries for their ownj benefit. We cannot allow China to undermine and threaten our energy industry the way they destroyed our manufacturing industry. The future and national security of America are at stake – we must protect our resources. Foreign countries, particularly China and Russia, aim to diminish American energy independence. It behooves them to fund organizations who work to stifle domestic energy progress. For instance, Russia has an interest in ending oil and gas production in America because their entire economy is dependent on Russian dominance in the oil market.
While China is newer to the energy game, they are quickly becoming a powerhouse. “Climate Change” campaigns have been very profitable for China as they hold monopolies on many of the critical minerals use in the “renewable energy” space. When the United States pulled out of the job-killing Paris Climate Accord, environmental activists bashed President Trump’s decision. These same actors remain silent on China’s egregious environmental practices, including horrible air quality and a hefty carbon footprint. Despite China being a leading polluter, they rarely face condemnation from “green” groups.
Attorney General Bill Barr recently state “the greatest threat to the 2020 election is China.” We have strong reason to believe that one of the many tactis they are using to influence our elections is through eco-left “green” groups. The CCP cannot be trusted and we must hold them and any bad actors accountable for funding political activity and election meddling in the United States.”
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
Climate Change Alarmism Causes War and Pollution
For the first time in history, America under President Trump became energy independent, producing more fossil fuels than we consume. On day one of Biden’s occupation of the White House, he shutdown the Keystone Pipeline and curtailed oil and gas leases on federal lands. This put the United States back into energy deficit, resulting in rising oil prices, which in turn increased the prices of food and other commodities that require diesel fuel to grow and ship. This also meant that we cannot supply energy to European countries, making them more dependent on Russian oil. It is Russian oil exports that are funding the invasion of Ukraine. Without those oil exports, the invasion of Ukraine would end. NATO countries are afraid to sufficiently supply arms to Ukraine for fear of Russia shutting off their oil and gas, so the war goes on. In short, it is green energy mania that has made Russia’s warmongering possible, resulting in massive pollution from bombs and burning buildings. It is ironic but true: Global warming hysteria is polluting the world and killing thousands.
The real purpose behind promoting alarm about climate change is to facilitate the transfer of wealth. Besides enriching themselves, politicians promote global warming hysteria because it facilitates the destruction of capitalism and the triumph of socialism. A global welfare state is their goal. They have said so themselves. For example, United Nations climate official Ottmar Edenhofer, who is co-chair of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said, “One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore… We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” They are no longer even trying to hide their motives. Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, also made a statement about the real intent of climate change policies: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
In her book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, Naomi Klein explains the mechanics of how global warming is really about destroying capitalism. In her book, she explains that the plan of the global warmists is to allow third-world countries to emit as much carbon dioxide as they wish while at the same time restricting emissions in advanced nations, which will choke their economic growth. This will allow socialist countries such as Red China to advance while at the same time holding back the economy of America. Klein gives an excellent summary of the modus operandi of global warming proponents when she says: “This is how the global warming alarmist community thinks. It wants to frighten, intimidate and then assume command. It needs a “crisis” to take advantage of, a hobgoblin to menace the people, so that they will beg for protection from the imaginary threat. The alarmists’ ‘better world’ is one in which they rule a global welfare state. They’ve admitted this themselves.”
Natural Temperature Cycles Show Global Warming is a Hoax
The simple fact of the matter is this: Global weather patterns go through cycles. They always have. The earth warms and cools and warms again. It has always been so. At one point in time, North America was covered with glaciers. As the planet warmed, they receded. This is basic earth science and it all happened way before the industrial age of man. The earth naturally warmed, and man had nothing to do with it.
A thousand years ago, the earth was warmer than it is now. Greenland is a perfect example of natural weather cycles. Discovered in 982 A.D. by Erik the Red (father of Leif Erikson), Erik named the country Greenland because much of it was green with vegetation, not covered with ice as it is today. The Vikings were able to farm in Greenland. After a few hundred years, they stopped farming due to a cooler climate. The temperature continued to decline for a few hundred more years. Even the Thames River in London began to freeze regularly. The decline in temperature reversed course in about A.D. 1700. If this warming trend continues, it may again be possible to farm in Greenland, and the sea ice in the north Atlantic may again become scarce. The study of ice cores and mollusk shell data backs up this historical data, showing that in the period between 800 and 1300 A.D., the average temperature in Greenland was significantly higher than it is today.
The earth’s temperature cycles are governed by sun activity, the flow of ocean currents, volcanic eruptions, the changing obliquity of the earth’s tilt, and the corresponding movement of the Intertropical Convergence Zone, and many other factors. Man’s contribution to the mix is minuscule. For example, the amount of CO2 greenhouse gas that the earth puts into the atmosphere through volcanic activity far outweighs what man has done. Meteorologists have pointed this out for years, but the Democrat global warming alarmists obfuscate the data and try to say it isn’t so. For example, I found this misleading statement on a global warming alarmist website:
“When you realize that volcanism contributes 645 million tons of CO2 per year – and it becomes clearer if you write it as 0.645 billion tons of CO2 per year – compared to humanity’s 29 billion tons per year. it’s overwhelmingly clear what’s caused the carbon dioxide increase in Earth’s atmosphere since 1750.”
The writer is trying to make the data show that man has caused much more CO2 than volcanoes. The data presented might carry a valid point if the earth only produced CO2 since the year 1750, the same length of time that man has ostensibly been using fossil fuels. But according to these global warming alarmists, the earth is 4.5 billion years old and has been spewing forth CO2 the entire time. Assuming that the earth’s emissions were not greater in the past (even though evidence indicates they were), let us calculate how much CO2 the earth has made, using the data of the global warming fanatics. Here is the formula:
Earth: .645 Billion tons per year x 4.5 Billion Years = 29,025,000,000 Billion tons, or 29,025,000 Trillion tons of CO2.
Now let’s calculate how much CO2 man has made. The year 1750 is not accurate, as man-made CO2 was insignificant until around 1920. We need only consider the last 100 years. Here is the formula:
Man: 29 Billion tons per year x 100 years = 2,900 Billion tons.
So while man has made only 2,900 billion tons of CO2, the earth has made 29,025,000 trillion tons of CO2. Or to look at it another way, mankind’s contribution to CO2 is only 0.00000999138 percent of the CO2 produced by volcanic activity. Even if you go with a 6,000-year-old earth as defined in Scripture, the CO2 made by the earth still far exceeds what man has done.
Many Scientists Disagree with Global Warming Alarmism
There are numerous scientists who take issue with the current obsession with climate change. Dr. Denis Rancourt, former professor of physics at the University of Ottawa, describes manmade global warming as a social phenomenon with no credible scientific evidence. He labels global warming as a $1.5 trillion dollar-per-year political behemoth. He says it is hard for scientists and politicians alike to get off such a comfortable and profitable moving gravy train since their reputations, prestige, and salaries all depend on it.
Freeman Dyson is a 91-year-old mathematical physicist and scientist at Princeton University. He has been studying the effects of carbon dioxide on vegetation for the past 37 years. He states that the increase in CO2 has been very beneficial for the Earth:
“There are huge non-climate effects of carbon dioxide which are highly favorable…the whole Earth is growing greener as a result of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, so it’s increasing agricultural yields, forests and all kinds of growth in the biological world – and that’s more important and more certain than the effects on climate. It’s enormously important for food production.”
Dr. Judith Curry is Professor and former Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She writes:
“No one questions that surface temperatures have increased since 1880…however, there is considerable uncertainty and disagreement about the most consequential issues: whether the warming has been dominated by human causes vs. natural variability, how much the planet will warm in the 21st century, and whether the warming is dangerous. We have been misled in our quest to understand climate change by not paying sufficient attention to natural causes of climate variability, in particular to the sun and from the long-term oscillations and ocean circulations. How, then, and why have climate scientists come to a consensus about a very complex scientific problem that the scientists themselves acknowledge has substantial and fundamental uncertainties? Climate scientists have become entangled in an acrimonious political debate.”
Atmospheric Physicist Siegfried Singer wrote: “there is no convincing evidence that the global climate is actually warming.” Who is this Singer fellow? Only the Einstein of climate. Definitely someone we should listen to. Siegfried Fred Singer was an Austrian-born American physicist and emeritus professor of environmental science at the University of Virginia. He was trained as an atmospheric physicist. Singer was named as the first director of meteorological satellite services for the National Weather Satellite Center, now part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He directed a program for using satellites to forecast the weather. Singer’s book Hot Talk, Cold Science is a must read for anyone who wants to know the truth about climate change.
Singer argues there is no evidence that the increases in carbon dioxide produced by humans cause global warming, and that if temperatures do rise it will be good for humankind. He told CBC: “It was warmer a thousand years ago than it is today. Vikings settled Greenland. Is that good or bad? I think it’s good. They grew wine in England, in northern England. I think that’s good. At least some people think so.” Sanger has stated: “We are certainly putting more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, however there is no evidence that this high CO2 is making a detectable difference.”
Conclusion – Global Warming is a Hoax
Global warming is a farce and does not stand up to sound science. It is a fiction manufactured by leftist Democrats to increase taxes and make companies purchase ridiculous “carbon credits,” which is nothing but a fancy name for another liberal tax scheme to promote socialism. The cult of global warming is a plot used by foreign governments such as Red China and Russia to harm western, particularly American, productivity.
Liberal voters have swallowed this con, not realizing it is a shake-down scam hatched in the bowels of their very own party. Those in the higher echelons of power in the Democratic Party understand that climate change is their tool, a device to make people afraid, a means to increase taxes, and an instrument to get money to their foreign accomplices who will return large portions of it to them through off-shore backroom deals. It is a means for politicians to get rich by shaking down corporations and forcing them to buy “protection” from the very laws they have created. It is the theft of America and the gangsterization of politics. The extreme environmental wacko-ism of man-made global warming is nothing but another communist lie. It is a smokescreen to bring in more taxes to increase socialism and government control.
Finally, it is an institutionalized weapon in the hands of wicked politicians, a device that gives them power and control over people so they can feel the head-rush of wielding power for the sake of power. It is control over businesses and people by the means of fear and propagated by fake science. The Democratic Party, by its full-on fanatical embrace of global warming, has shown itself to be an out-of-control run-away train of ruthless power and corruption. They are the Big Brother of George Orwell’s 1984, and if they are not stopped, we can anticipate the future Orwell warned of: “Imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”
